MURDER ON MILLIONAIRES' ROW
is a paranormal mystery thriller by Erin Lindsey. A story with an
intelligent female lead character who proves that she can shine when
she solves the mystery at hand.
Once I started reading I was hooked! MURDER ON MILLIONAIRES' ROW is a mystery thriller
that will draw you into a world that is unlike any other. A world full of
Gilded Age details in Manhattan, ghosts, a budding romance, and the
unexpected paranormal luck. These supernatural elements help to
bring an eerie but essential tone to the story. A world that makes you
wonder about the shadows lurking in the night.
The lavish world of upper-class New York is at intense odds with the
beautifully and glamorously portrayed grit of Five Points in a clash that
becomes even more staggering as the mystery unfolds.
There are several characters introduced and more mentioned in this
novel so there's an opportunity for many great subplots and future
storylines. They are well rounded with shocking backstories that help
to mesh with the overall storyline making for a memorable read. Some
stand out more than others but all are needed to help round out the
mystery and leaving you wondering why?
MURDER ON MILLIONAIRES' ROW
is an engaging and fast-paced read that is full of adventure and
mystery. I look forward to seeing more adventures from the characters.
In Murder on Millionaires' Row, Erin Lindsey's
debut historical mystery, a daring housemaid searches Gilded
Age Manhattan for her missing employer and finds a hidden
world of magic, ghosts, romance, and Pinkerton detectives.
Rose Gallagher might dream of bigger things, but she’s
content enough with her life as a housemaid. After all, it’s
not every girl from Five Points who gets to spend her days
in a posh Fifth Avenue brownstone, even if only to sweep its
floors. But all that changes on the day her boss, Mr. Thomas
Wiltshire, disappears. Rose is certain Mr. Wiltshire is in
trouble, but the police treat his disappearance as nothing
more than the whims of a rich young man behaving badly.
Meanwhile, the friend who reported him missing is
suspiciously unhelpful. With nowhere left to turn, Rose
takes it upon herself to find her handsome young employer.
The investigation takes her from the marble palaces of Fifth
Avenue to the sordid streets of Five Points. When a ghostly
apparition accosts her on the street, Rose begins to realize
that the world around her isn’t at all as it seems—and her
place in it is about to change forever.
